The Australian Institute of Superannuation Trustees (AIST) has made two key senior appointments as it looks to focus on membership engagement and delivering on professional development.
The organisation announced that it had appointed Tania Turnbull as general manager, memberships and partnerships and George Nelson as general manager, professional development.
In announcing the appointments, AIST chief executive, Eva Scheerlinck, pointed to the need to service member funds.
Turnbull has a strong background in the industry having spent over five years as general manager, strategy and communications at superannuation administrator, Superpartners then as group executive, marketing at McMillan Shakespeare, while Nelson has more than 20 years’ experience in education and innovation strategy in both Australia and New Zealand.
“There has been so much change to the superannuation industry and the landscape that it operates in,” Scheerlinck said. “AIST, too, has had to adjust and both Tania and George bring a range of skills and a depth of experience that we believe will benefit profit-to-member funds and, ultimately, their members.”
